Being an America there was only one thing I didn't like and would stop me from living in Japan. Not enough space! I like having a backyard and some acreage/space in the suburbs but the Japanese are crammed on top of each other. It was the only thing that would give me pause, especially since my dogs are bigger than most Japanese lol.

Sexism. Water pollution. Romanticizing Europeans and Americans. A lot of them wish to be Caucasian while forgetting how great it is to actually be Japanese.

For me, I realize that I'm on the outside looking in, but the way Japan runs their economy is mind-blogging and frustrating. As you probably know, Japan's economy has been pretty much stagnant for the past few decades with low growth and a population getting dangerously on the tipping point of being top heavy (Too few "young" people to support a large number of the elderly). Every measure they do to stimulate their economy is a half-step, they really need to address deflation.

In addition the corporate culture is bad too, too few opportunities for women overall, people are overworked to death, and it's too difficult to fire someone. I understand that no one likes to be fired, but it's a drain on productivity and resources to keep someone on and just give them a window seat so they could just die eventually form old age because it's the "honorable" thing to do.

I also just want to reiterate that no nation is perfect and trust me, there is NO way America is perfect the way it is now or any country that is. This is simply about Japan and the faults I see in their nation (And I'm sure Japanese people have negative views about the United States too).

Japan is a little sexist at times.

Also some of them seem to really dislike foreigners, like a lot.
